3. Discover our amazing community gardens
Community gardens are the hidden gems of our city. You’ll find them tucked away behind bowling clubs and nestled in-between houses from the hills of Brooklyn to the winding streets of Karori.
Not only are they abundant with local kai, they’re also wonderful places to go and connect with others, or simply take some time out for your mental health. They’re scattered across the city, so what are you waiting for? Head out and find one near you.
